Eight Training Modules

Module 1: Digital Trends and Technologies

Module 1 will provide a comprehensive overview of the most important digital trends and disruptive technologies. Automation, digitisation, personalisation, intermediation, virtualisation are some trends to be described with real world examples for different industries and organisations. Disruptive technologies like big data, cloud, mobility, IoT, robotics, 3-D printing, artificial intelligence and many more will be explained and existing and future scenarios for practical application described. The technology evolution model helps to assess the impact of new technologies for different industries.

Module 2: Digital Business Models and Strategies

Here we will focus on the most relevant and latest digital business models. Those models will serve as a blueprint for the analysis of new revenue streams, products and services that (your) company can choose to survive in the digital world. Well known business models and examples provide a wide variety of options to develop ideas and prototypes and most of the benefits and risks are already known. The participants will jointly works on the transfer of blueprints into their own business world and industry.

Module 3: Digital Marketing and Communication

Communication and marketing play an increasing key role in the digital world, but organisations should provide more than just noise to differentiate in the global market. Personalisation, experience and transformation are key trends to gain new customers and keep existing ones. Content marketing, programmatic advertising, social media marketing will help to translate noise into signals, novelty, insight and last but not least reputation.

Module 4: Digital Capabilities and Roadmaps

After defining defining digital strategies and business models, organizations need to analyze which digital capabilities they have to develop to successfully implement their strategies. The digital capability model is a proven framework that includes digital capabilities and maturity models as well as digital use cases for different industries incl. banking, insurance, logistics, telecommunication, healthcare etc.

Module 5: Cybercrime Protection and Detection

Cybercrime is the fastest-growing area of crime. More and more criminals are exploiting the speed, convenience and anonymity of the Internet to commit a diverse range of criminal activities that know no borders, either physical or virtual, cause serious harm and pose very real threats to victims through the world. This training module will provide you with methods for operational and investigative support, protection and detection of cybercrime.

Module 6: Chief Information Officer Versus Chief Digital Officer

In the past, IT was seen as a business strategy translator, and CIO’s had the task to transform business requirements into a stable, high-performance IT solutions. They were rarely involved in strategic discussions about business models, markets and products, and even less involved in the decision-making processes. Today, many companies are looking for new digital business models, more automation, a better better understanding of customer needs and products that open up new potential of use through technology. What does this change mean the CIO role? And are these CIO's prepared?

Module 7: Robotic Process Automation

The shift to robotic process automation (RPA) which digitises labour through the use of advanced machine intelligence, will inevitably transform the working environment as we know it. When combined with developments in big data, analytics, social media, mobile and cloud technologies, RPA offers organisations immense new potential. You will learn how the RPA transformation has begun and how progressive organisations can benefit from dramatic productivity gains and cost reduction while also re-structuring their sourcing and resourcing models, and more.

Module 8: Bi-Modal Digital Enterprise Transformation

Traditional companies are more concerned than ever about how to transform into a digital company. Often the transformation is complicated by aging IT systems, the habits of executives and employees, a lack of understanding of the need for change, and insufficient know-how in the use of digital technologies. An alternative to conventional transformation is the establishment of ring agile “cells” e.g. In the form of start-ups, so that there are two parallel modes of training – a slow, complex tanker and a speedboat. What are the experiences with this model?
